Spaceworks Tacoma launched in 2010 as a joint initiative of the City of Tacoma and the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce. We celebrate Tacoma culture by providing opportunities to artists and entrepreneurs in three main ways:
- ARTSCAPES temporarily places 2D, 3D, mural, or multi-media art installations in storefront windows, outdoor spaces, and an outdoor video gallery.
- CREATIVE ENTERPRISE provides relevant and meaningful small business training and peer-to-peer support to the participants to systematically grow Tacoma’s creative class and generate destination quality activity that will engage and transform our community.
- SPECIAL PROJECTS provides short-term space (one day up to six months) to individuals or groups who want to pursue or present art of any discipline, a creative special project, or a pop-up store/event.
Spaceworks Tacoma supports the transformative work of local creative entrepreneurs and artists. Through our programs and partnerships, Spaceworks is a recognized economic development and revitalization tool for the Tacoma community.
Together with our clients, funders, and community supporters, we provide opportunities for underserved small businesses, reduce vacancy rates, and add vibrant art & cultural activities.
Spaceworks makes Tacoma culturally vibrant and economically strong through training and support for artists and creative entrepreneurs.
We do this by:
Facilitating training and professional development that is geared to the creative entrepreneurs.
Presenting community events that highlight our participants and encourage community interaction.
Providing temporary space and visibility to creative entrepreneurs, organizations, community groups and artists.
